Parents and residents of communities across Michigan are fighting back against mask mandates. And they’ve had enough of the tyrannical rule by both elected and unelected officials in their state.
Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel ignored mask mandates for students and daycares in neighboring counties and is leaving the decision up to parents about whether or not their kids wear masks to school or in a daycare setting.
“(We’re) giving people the opportunity for choice,” Hackel said. “So, if a kid wants to wear a mask, whether their school does or doesn’t, they can. If parents what their kids to wear masks, they may or may not … But in the schools that are saying it is required, you must wear a mask; obviously, that’s going to be something that the kids have to do.”
One school board member who’s been especially vocal about forcing kids and adults to wear masks is Lakeview’s School Board Vice President Donald Wheaton Jr.
Lakeview schools are located in Macomb County, MI, a county that went solidly for Trump in 2016 and again in 2020.
During a September 14, 2021 school board meeting, Mr. Wheaton went off on a rant against fellow school board members who refused to wear masks to the meeting.
A parent in the Lakeview Schools created a video that shows the school board vice president ranting at fellow board members and then singing maskless in a local karaoke bar in July and again in October was shared exclusively with 100 Percent Fed Up.
